I can't take the height. Help!

Hi All,

There must be SOME way to gain height. I am hearing advertisements for "heightmax" which is a pill and I found "KIMI" through a google search. Does anyone have any experience with these or can suggest any other height enhancement techniques?

Are there any surgical operations available? I'm sure this would be costly but I'm just curious.

I'm sure (through looking at other's posts) that some will reply saying how appreciative I should be with my current height and such things. I already know this and I do, but I'd really like some more info on if itís actually possible.

My Height: 5ft 5in - 5ft 7in (i really don't know)
My Weight: 123lb
Ethnicity: Indian (Asia)
Mom height: 5ft 2in-3in
Dad height: 5ft 3in-5in
Grandpa: 5ft 9in
Grandma: 5ft 1in

Yikes, I forgot to mention that as well. I am 19 and male as well.

Are you parents short too? Have you attempted to find any enhancements?

Re: I can't take the height. Help!

I asked this question before,from the replies I got,people said those height supplements where just trash,preying on men's insecurities,I don't know %100 though,I have not tride any of them,but ifyour 19,you migth still grow a little bit,men don't stop growing till 25 I think,so maby if your nutrition is perfect and everything,that will help maximize your growth.I'm 21 and on'ly about 5'10,I feel short,I wish there was a way to grow taller and I'm still researching it,if I find any helful info,I will post it.

5'10 is actually the averge if not 1in up or 1in down.

But i'm sure no one is happy. I believed i had heard of some sergical operations but i'm not all to sure.

Would it be worth to try and enhancer pills or even that foot KOMO thing?

Re: I can't take the height. Help!

i'm 5'2 and 15 years old. i haven't gone through any of puberty... i'm currently on human growth hormone. i have to do shots 6 nights a week. i was 4'7" when i started. so 7 inches taller and no puberty must mean that all that growth was due to the hormone... right? i am embarrased that i haven't matured at all and am 15 1/2 years old. anyway, you can only grow taller unless you haven't gone through puberty. there's zones in your joints and bones that cover up when you hit a certain stage and once those get covered, you can't grow. the only thing that i have heard of people trying to get taller after puberty is for little people (dwarfs). they have their shins broken and then spaced about 1/2 inch apart with brackets. then the bone fills in that gap when it heals. then they do it again. very painful process. and btw, HGH is VERY expensive. i think a month's supply is about 9 grand. insurance covers me, cause i am growth hormone difficient, but not a dwarf.
